Obituary for Dorothy "Dolly" Fraser

FRASER, Dorothy Helen “Dolly”
(nee Brewer)
Our family has lost our much loved matriarch. On March 3, 2015 Dorothy (Dolly) Fraser died at the age of 89 in the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. Arnold is bereft at the loss of his wife of more than sixty years. Dolly was the ever proud mother of Michael Fraser, Kimberly Mann (Richard Power-Fardy) and Julie Nicholson (Colin) and even more proud grandmother of Jordan Mann (Cathia Landry), Patrick Nicholson (Becky Reid) and Marcus Nicholson. Dolly especially adored her great grandson, Max Nicholson. Although Dolly suffered from poor health for much of her life, she was always engaged in her children’s and grandchildren’s lives, always with an eager ear and always supportive. Indeed she was devoted to them and she expressed her love through her keen interest, her compassion and her generosity. Dolly shared her love of plants and nature, enjoying every minute at the log home at Golden Lake. We all share years of fond memories of camping and eventually cottaging there. Dolly loved animals and our family members always included beloved cats and dogs. Dolly helped to instill an appreciation of these things in her children. We are fortunate to have many of Dolly’s beautiful quilts, her handmade braided rugs, her sewing and knitting and many other examples of her art and her great skill. These items were made for her family with love and will be cherished always. Dolly’s family would like to thank Dr. Cathy Greenough and the wonderful staff at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. We couldn’t have made it through this tough time without their warmth, compassion, good humour and excellent skills. A celebration of Dolly’s life will be held at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior, on Friday morning, March 6, 2015 at 11 o’clock. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Arnprior District and Memorial Hospital “Partners in Caring” Foundation, the Lung Association or the Arnprior & District Humane Society would be much appreciated.
